Easy Flow Blend

Mental Health Blend

Anti-Inflammatory Blend

Research
We found more than 1,643 studies on Angelica — here’s what matters:


  • While dong quai root, also known as angelica root, has been used for centuries in traditional medicines for women’s health issues, researchers have identified the bioactive compound as Z-ligustilide — a powerful compound that inhibits contraction in uterine muscle and also improves microcirculation in uterine tissue. What does that mean in plain english? Ligustilide helps relax menstrual cramps.
  • Ligustilide is also a powerful anti-inflammatory, which may help fight a number of period symptoms like pain and bloating.
  • Angelica also contains several chemical components that behave similarly to serotonin, a super important neurotransmitter that contributes to feelings of wellbeing and happiness. Serotonin is also involved in the regulation of sleep, mood, appetite (think cravings), memory, and learning. In fact, most pharmaceutical treatments for PMS include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) to improve serotonin levels.

Baikal Skullcap Root

Symptom Relief

A powerful anti-inflammatory that also helps protect the liver.

Used in PMS Support.

Anti-Inflammatory Blend

Hormone Health Blend

Research

  • Baikal skullcap is a particularly important ingredient because it contains two powerful
    antioxidant flavones called Baicalin and Baicalein. These compounds are anti-inflammatory and are effective in reducing pain. Chinese skullcap flavones have also been shown to decrease anxiety and inhibit anxiety increasing neurons.
  • Additionally, Chinese skullcap flavones are hepatoprotective (they protect the liver), and decreased disease promoting proteins in the liver and also helped arrest liver cell death. Supporting healthy liver function is key to controlling PMS. Decreased liver function can lead to larger increases in hormone fluctuation, one of the primary causes of PMS symptoms.
  • Finally, we chose Chinese skullcap for its anticancer effects, especially against ovarian and breast cancer. Baicalein has been demonstrated to inhibit the proliferation of both ovarian cancer and breast cancer cells.

  • The pain reduction wasn’t just superior to placebo. Subsequent studies found that pain relief from ginger was equivalent to both ibuprofen and mefenamic acid. Because ginger produced no adverse effects, the researchers concluded that it be used as an alternative treatment to pharmaceutical interventions.

  • PMS: Researchers found that ginger was effective for relieving a number of different PMS symptoms including: abdominal and low back pain, headache, gastrointestinal disturbances, nausea, and joint and muscle pain.

  • Blood Volume: Ginger doesn’t only reduce menstrual cramping, but the amount of menstrual bleeding as well. In a study with 93 young women, overall bleeding volume decreased significantly with the use of ginger. The researchers concluded, “ginger can be known as a highly effective treatment for menstrual blood loss and the promotion of the quality of life of young women. It is cheap, easy to use, and has fewer side-effects than other chemical and invasive approaches.”

  • Fennel seed isn’t just better for cramps than placebo pills, it held its own against a potent pharmaceutical pain killer (similar to ibuprofen, but requiring a prescription). In a study of severe menstrual pain in high school students, there was no statistically significant difference between fennel seed and mefenamic acid, a preferred NSAID for treating menstrual pain. However, there were no reports of side effects in the fennel seed group, while possible side effects of mefenamic acid include nausea, diarrhea, rashes, autoimmune anemia, and kidney toxicity. A later study confirmed these results.
  • Fennel seed has also been shown to relieve nausea and fatigue associated with menstrual bleeding, decrease the duration of the period, and improve overall feelings of well-being when taken over several cycles.
